Garden workshops slated Saturday

By From page A2 | September 13, 2013

Yolo County Master Gardeners will present two free workshops Saturday at the Central Park Gardens at Third and B streets in downtown Davis.

From 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Master Gardener Kathy Bers will discuss fall and winter vegetable gardening. Topics covered will be good soil practices, when and what to plant and likely winter garden pests. This workshop will provide a gardener with the local knowledge for a successful winter vegetable garden in Yolo County.

From 11 a.m. to noon, Master Gardener Ann Daniel will show samples and provide information on how to establish a waterwise garden that features California natives. California native plants provide both an attractive and waterwise garden. California natives are easy to grow in Yolo County and have the added benefit of attracting a variety of native pollinators to the garden.

The Oct. 12 Master Gardener Workshop at Central Park Gardens, from 9:30 to 11 a.m., will provide an overview of fall planting in the Yolo County garden. Planting a variety of ornamentals, California natives, bulbs and seeds in the fall provides a sound basis for the spring garden.

For more information, call Peg Smith at 530-756-8409.
